'47 Boasts Miss Michael Censors 
Only One Line From Junior Show 

Nan Weiser Announces Completion of Script 
Class to Get Inside Dope at Meeting Today 

by Dorothy Nessler 



"Junior Show is now in finished 
form," announced • Nan Weiser, 
Head of Junior Show. "It has 
k'oni.- out from the inventive imag- 
inations of song and script writers, 
and is ready to be 'put on the road.' 
Things are really beginning to 
hum." 

At exactly 4:40 today at Billings 
Hall, The Show will be read to the 
assembled mass of '47 for com- 
ments and approval. Though small 
try-outs will be held over the week- 
end in Casenove, the actual casting, 
for the benefit of those who leave 
campus on week-ends, will not be- 
gin until Monday. From then on, 
try-outs will be held in the grand 
hall room of Alumnae Hall, For 
Juniors Only. 

Nan announces that Miss Ruth 
Michael, faculty censor, has read 
and censored only one line from 
one song of the Show. 

As is traditional, everything 
about The Show is kept a dead 
secret until the night of production, 
November 17. At this point, only 
two things may be announced. The 
first is that there will he 11 songs, 
and that "the plot deals with a 



facet of Wellesley life directly af- 
fecting every Wellesley girl." 

The second is that, according to 
Juniors, it is the best Junior Show 
ever to be produced. 

Ann Farley is head of produc- 
tion. Her committee heads include 
Myrtle Atkinson, props; Joan 
Twaddle, Costumes; Gail McWhort- 
er, Make-up; Lee Emery, Scenery;

Bigger Better 
1946 Legenda 

by Miggs Ignatius 'J,7 

If Pat Ray '46, editor-in-chief 
of Legenda, should suddenly tell 
you to "hold it" as you are eating 
a brownie at the Well or striding 
to class under a load of books . . . 
just don't be too surprised. Do as 
she says and "hold it:" In less time 
than it takes you to say Legenda, 
one of Pat's ace cameramen will 
have your face and figure per- 
manently recorded in black and 
white and you'll appear as an at- 
traction in the '46 yearbook. Do 
you have to be beautiful? Do you 
have to be brilliant? Do you have 
to have an A-Plus Average? No. 
You just have to have that certain 
something, that indescribable flair 
that makes a cameraman want to 
waste his film on you. One girl 
from each class will be snapped in 
action. 

But this isn't the only new angle 
in the '46 Legenda. Pat Ray and 
her staff plan to have more repre- 
sentation of all the classes, more 
informal snapshots of the students, 
bigger and better senior pictures. 
And the page make-up will be new, 
different, and utterly intriguing. 
But this isn't all. Legenda will 
have "Pre-war size with post-war 
plans!" And it will contain a 
wonderful new something that is to 
be kept strictly secret until its 
debut next May. 

But don't let curiosity do to you 
what it did to the mythical cat, 
because Pat and her staff want 
lots and lots of candid pictures of 
you. Photograph your friends. 
Photograph yourself. But be sure 
the prints are glossy. Be sure they 
have clear values in black and 
white. And don't forget to turn 
them in to Pat Ray! 



Dr. Emerson, UNRRA 
Delegate, Will Speak 
On London Conference 

Dr. Rupert Emerson, the 
United States alternate Delegate 
to the United Nations Relief and 
Rehabilitation Agency, will speak 
today at 4:40 in Pendleton Hall on 
U.N.R.R.A., The First United Na- 
tions Peace Time Attempt at Co- 
operation. 

At the U.N.R.R.A. conference 
held last August in London, Dr. 
Emerson was too Foreign Econo- 
mic Administration representative, 
He is also special assistant to the 
administrator on liberated areas. 
This winter, Dr. Emerson went 
abroad with Judge Samuel Rosen- 
man to make a thorough study of 
conditions in Europe. 

Dr. Emerson was graduated 
from Harvard in 1921 and received 
his Ph.D. from the London School 
of Economics in 1927. From 1921 
to 1922 he was a reporter on the 
New York Sun. Since that time he 
served as an associate professor in 
government at Harvard, and has 
participated in many government 
actiivties. With the Department of 
the Interior in Washington, he 
served as Director of the Division 
of Territories and Island Posses- 
sions from 1940 to 1941. His next 
appointment to the Office of Cor-

Fiske's Pastel Rooms 
Opening for Inspection 

"We've been living in a mare's 
nest for a month, but we're now 
inviting guests to see the new 
F'ske House," says Miss Carol 
Roehm, new head of house at 
Fiske, when- open house will be 
held Friday evening, October 25, 
from 7:30 "to 9:00. 

The redecorated living room and 
new fireplace, the freshly done re- 
ception room, and the bedrooms 
painted in pastel colors, will be 
open for inspection. As Miss 
Roehm sard, "Pastel bedrooms are 
quite an innovation for Wellesley 
College," and Fiske is anxious to 
show them off. 

Since the remodeling was not 
completed when the term opened, 
tomorrow's open house will be the 
official house-warming. 




Compte de Lubersac 



To Describe Conditions 
During Nazi Occupation 

Interned at Buclienwald for 

Aiding American Airmen 

Down Over France 

Compte Raoul de Lubersac, who 
with his wife was seized by the 
Gestapo on the charge of shelter- 
ing and aiding the escape of 
American flyers forced down over 
France, will speak in English of 
h'.s experiences in Buchenwald con- 
centration camp and of present 
conditions in France, tonight at 
8:30 in Pendleton Hall. Compte 
de Lubersac is in the United 
States on a special mission for 
the French Ministry of Informa- 
tion. 

Service Fund is sponsoring the 
lecture as part of its annual drive 
which will open November 5. 

When arrested Compte de Luber- 
sac was the director of the Raf- 
rinerie de Petrole de la Gironde in 
Paris, affiliated with Texaco Oil 
Company. His wife was released, 
but the Compte was imprisoned 
at Fresnes and Compiegne, and 
later deported to Buchenwald. He 
was held here for fourteen and a 
half months until his release by 
units of the American Army. 

On the day that he was freed 
from the concentration camp, he 
joined the 80th Reconnaissance 
Troop, USA. 

He will talk tonight chiefly of 
what he has seen in France and 
the reasons for French action in 
this postwar period of reorganiza- 
tion. Service Fund officers feel 
strongly that in these hectic po- 
litical tijnes for Europe all na- 
tions which have been largely de- 
stroyed by war need assistance in 
filling their need for clothes and 
the basic articles of living. 

According to Irene Peterson '46, 
chairman of Service Fund, the 
quota of the drive opening No- 
vember 5 has been increased over 
last year's quota because the need 
in Europe is greater than ever 
before. It was not until lately 
that groups could enter the con- 
tinent for rehabilitation work. 



Heidbreder Explains 
Recent Experiments 
On Mental Processes 

Endeavoring to explain our 
mental processes. Miss Edna Heid- 
breder, Professor of Psychology, 
spoke on "How Do We Know?" 
last Monday, October 22, at 7:30 
in Pendleton East. 

Approaching the question of the 
formulation of concepts from the 
psychological side, Miss Heid- 
breder stated her hypothesis of 
human cognition. "All human 
cognition," she said, "can be 
ordered primarily with relation to 
perceptions of objects. Sensory 
stimulation, integration and learn- 
ing are necessary for the attain- 
ment of concepts, which are the 
fuctional extensions of these re- 
sponses. The outcome is the unit, 
synonymous with symbolic be- 
havior." 

Miss Heidbreder cited an ex- 
periment involving sixty-three 
people who were to learn nine dif- 
ferent types of new concepts in 
each of sixteen series. These con- 
cepts were represented by such 
nonsense syllables as "mult," sig- 
nifying different types of trees, 
and "fard," signifying different 
variations of circles in the six- 
teen series. Thus the experiment 
illustrated the hypothesis that per- 
ception of physical objects is 
fundamental to the formulation of 
concepts. 



Trial Marriages are Common In 
Japan Says Dr. Douglas Haring 

Student-Professor Relations Reflect Confucian Past 
Strict Discipline Maintained in Japanese Colleges 

by Baum Rosencranz '1,7 



"How the boys used to haunt 
the mission schools!" laughed Dr. 
Douglas C. Haring, Associate Pro- 
fessor of Sociology at Syracuse 
University and speaker at the 
Mayling Soong Foundation-Forum 
dinner, as he lit his pipe and 
settled back for an off-the-record 
chat on a less serious aspect of 
Japan. 

The mission schools are general- 
ly considered a good place to find 
a wife, Dr. Haring went on to ex- 
plain, for their main function is 
to fit the girls for marriage. Al- 
though there was no way for the 
boys to meet the students socially, 
the boys would "soap up" the 
preacher so that he would find 
them a good match when he later 
acted as go-between. "They wanted 
a woman who could bake a good 
pie or decorate a home in the latest 
western style, and generally put 
them on their feet socially." 

"Japanese marriages, of course, 
are arranged by the families 
through a go-between, Dr. Haring 
continued. It is a concession for 
the girl even to see a picture of her 
future husband. In a few instances, 



however, the girl is allowed some 
choice. This was the case with an 
intelligent young pupil of Mrs. 
Haring. Soon after the marriage, 
the girl was much upset to find 
that her husband, supposedly check- 
ed and double-checked by the go- 
between, was a highway robber. 
While the Harings were investigat- 
ing divorce procedure, the girl's 
prudent Buddhist father appeared 
and calmly informed them that a 
divorce was unnecessary since he, 
doubting the integrity of the go- 
between, had not yet signed the 
papers which would make the mar- 
riage legal. It was then that Dr. 
Haring discovered that such trial 
marriages are a common Japanese 
practice. 

A large part of the responsibil- 
ity for the happiness of the mar- 
riages rests on the shoulders of the 
go-between. In the case of the mar- 
riage just mentioned, he was ac- 
tually ostracised from the com- 
munity for arranging such an un- 
fortunate match. The lower classes 
used to arrange their marriages 
through commercial marriage brok-

THE TIME IS NOW 

This morning about two hundred Juniors and 
Seniors received notices of acceptance into so- 
cieties. This, as a result of a recent admin- 
istration, alumnae, society meeting, is at least 
30 more Seniors than have been admitted in 
previous falls. The lists of those accepted were 
compiled on Monday. Wednesday C.G. held 
an open senate meeting to consider last year's 
unfinished business of the system of society 
membership. Although perhaps a semester late, 
C.G.'s move at this time was highly in order. 
During the recent period of society teas it 
been foremost in the minds of many stu- 
dents that last year, under pressure from the 
student body, Senate appointed a committee 
to investigate the society membership. Both 
committee and the Intersociety Council 
oted thought and time to considering the 
ation here at Wellesley. Ai an open Senate 
ting both committees submitted plans basi 
upon their studies. And there the matter was 
dropped when it was found that the Senate 
had power only to form the investigating com- 
mittees and to present the case to the college. 
3ociety question is additionally complicated 
bj the fad that although closely connected 
with the college, the societies are owned, not by 
the college, bu1 by the Alumnae. Approval oi

HOME IS THE SAILOR 

Wellesley, having its own partiality for the 
Navy, joins in welcoming home this week a 
large share of the United States fleet. In ports 
all over the country Meet units are being given 
an enthusiastic and well-deserved cheer and 
vole of thanks from the American people. On 
Saturday, Navy Day. ship- of the Third Fleet 
will be lined in spectacular array in the Hud- 
son River, in Boston Harbor, in the Mississippi, 
in San Francisco Bay and elsewhere to give 
Americans a first-hand look at the ships which 
were so largely responsible for the destruction 
of Japan's navy and air force. It will be an 
impressive panorama complete with large for- 
mal ion- ol carrier plane- Hying overhead, gun 
salvos from the ships and navy personnel in 
full dress uniform. 

We have our own share of pride in the navy 
and feel we have made a contribution to its 
success. Our President did a distinguished 
patriotic service as Commander of Waves who 
were hi invaluable assistance in maintaining 
the smooth functioning of naval training posts, 
air fields, and ordnance departments. Welles- 
ley was itself "indoctrinated" into navy ways 
when two of our dormitories were used to house 
Naval Supply Corps units for a year. We be- 
came accustomed to hearing about decks, 
CINCPAC, navigation, and mess, and took a 
special pride in sharing our campus with over 
four hundred male "coeds." Wellesley'- name 
was carried to the Pacific on the bow of a 
liberty ship built by Alumnae fund-. 

"The Rampaging Third" i- home again, its 
battles over. Our debt to its gallant men is 
great, our gratitude unbounded. We join the 
rest of America in saying "Welcome home and 
well done!" 



CAMPUS OSTRICHES 

Are we content to be looked upon a- "campus 
ostriches"? Or do we prefer to be considered 
"citizens of the world"? Undoubtedly we pre- 
fer the dignity and prestige of the latter title. 
But we can not claim the status of respon- 
sible adults, citizens of the world, unless we 
are ready to accept the moral obligations in- 
volved and prove ourselves in deed as well 
as word. 

Within the last few weeks we have had an 
opportunity to learn of the conditions in Eu- 
rope during and since the war from vivid eye 
witness account-. We have been told the harsh 
cruel story of human torture and human suf- 
fering past our comprehension — more ghastly 
than any nightmare, more ghastly than I lie 

most lurid murder story, more ghastly because 

true. 

And every day in every paper we read, in 

every newsreel we see the truth about condi- 
tions in this world of which we are citizen.- is 
broughi home to us. We cannot plead igno- 
rance. 

What are we doing about it? To do nothing 
i- criminal negligence, for it is tampering with 
human life. 

Each garment that doesn't get made iu the 
workroom, that doesn't get sent to Europe 
means thai some child may freeze this winter 
in Poland. Germany, or France. That child 
will not. just be cold because she hasn't an e 
warm dress, she will freeze to death because 
she hasn'1 anything else to wear. 

It is difficull for us who have not felt actual 

physical hard-hip to comprehend the situation 
in the d.\ astated count] n-- Pi rhaps if we 
imagine it in term.- of suffering among membei • 
of our own family it will have meaning. 

\- citizens of the world we cannot fail to 
recognize our responsibility to our fellow cit- 
fhe wai has stripped them of their rai- 
"" at, wounded them, and Ief1 them half dead. 
Will we like the prie.-t and the Levite see them 
lying there and pass by on the other side? 



Beyond the Campus 



n 



by Ginny Guild '46 



a time, not three 
some superhuman 




Once upon 
months ugo, 
blending of hu- 
m an genius] 
brought forth the 
most revolution- 
ary physical and 
moral discovery 
of all time. A 
bomb was made 
and dropped on 
two Japanese cit- 
ies. This terrible 
and awesome 
bomb destroyed 
almost all of both 
of these cities. 



With the sudden and cataclysmic 
release of the heretofore inconceiv- 
able power of atomic energy, two- 
thirds of a city rose up in flame 
and the great part of the popula- 
tion died a searing death. 
Peace on Earth? 
This ruin and their death was 
the necessary sacrifice that had to 
be made to secure everlasting peace 
for the world. It took the catas- 
trophes of Nagasaki and Hiro- 
shima to convince man that hu- 
manity has finally discovered the 
way to end the world. For years, 
people in California and all over 
have been adding up the prophets, 
multiplying them by the psalms 
and dividing the result by the dis- 
tance from Nazareth to Jerusalem 
in an effort to predict the end of 
the world. This time, though, it 
isn't magic; it is real. A divine 
genius somehow arranged the de- 
velopment of the atomic bomb — the 
most terrible weapon of history — 
because he believed that only by 
the convincing and horrible pros- 
pect of complete annihilation will 
the people of the world be bludg- 
eoned into keeping peace longer 
than the time it takes to grow a 
new garden of young men. The 
conviction was that, after all these 
years of futile effort, a force had 
come that wouldjuake these lowly 
sinners repent and resolve to keep 
neace somehow, because they had 
learned what utter devastation 
would befall civilization if anoth- 
er war were allowed. 

And so, that is how Peace on 
Earth was finally bom. Man him- 
self was given grace to discover 
the weapon which proved so dis- 
astrous that men no longer dared 
make war but had to learn to live 
in peace with one another. 
New Wars 

It is a beautiful story, but it 



happened in ancient history. It 
happened ten weeks ago, and since 
then, man, in his folly, has for- 
gotten. The man in the street to- 
day, when asked about the atomic 
bomb, will not fall on his knees 
and thank God for the instrument 
of salvation that He sent to the 
world. Instead he will remark 
that we should not give the secret 
to those dreadful Russians, shrug 
his shoulders and comment on the 
diplomatic failures of the Big Five. 

Ten weeks after the first use of 
the atomic bomb and the defeat of 
Japan, nations are starting new 
wars. The only explanation that 
the sickened mind of posterity will 
be able to find is that another dis- 
covery was made shortly after that 
of the atomic bomb which perfect- 
ed a way to conceive and produce 
adult males in ten weeks' time. 

But the explanation is not as 
flattering to man's intelligence. 
The tragic irony is that men have 
forgotten— no more than that. We 
have turned our faces away. 

Discouraged Divinity 

The explanation does not lie in 
that we perhaps did not hear about 
the potentialities of the atomic 
bomb. We all read about it in the 
newspaper. We even let the idea 
pass through our minds. There 
was a time, way back, when every- 
one was talking about it. The 
dentist, with both hands and all his 
machinery in your mouth, asked 
you what you thought of the 
atomic bomb. As soon as you had 
chewed off everything you could, 
you swallowed and replied that it- 
eertainIv-!ooked-like - the - end - of- 
the-world-yes-it-did. We believed 
the scientists, certainly. We did- 
n't laugh at them the way we were 
laughing at the people in Califor- 
nia, but we scarcely treated their 
conclusions more seriously. 

How can we continue to perne- 
trate this crime of ignoring the 
fact that could scare us into nerma- 
nent cooperation for peace? How 
can we, for one example among 
manv, have heard 1p Commandant 
MniUard last Thursday relate the 
inhuman and dpsoirihlp torture he 
differed at the hands of the Nazis 
in this war and still refuse to use 
the atomic bomb and its potentiali- 
ties as the means of terrifying the 
«'orld out of anothpr such disaster? 
Peace has been attained in no other 
way Let us not reject what seems 
a gift from a very desperate and 
discouraged divinity.

tions, letters should be limited to 
two hundred words. 



To the editor: 

I should like to submit the fol- 
lowing: facts in reply to a free 
press on the Student Education 
Committee. The Committee was 
selected in the winter of 1943-44 
from a list of applicants, by fac- 
ulty members and Senate. The 
group at that time numbered ten 
persons; they were appointed 
rather than elected because it was 
felt that a special study of the 
type to be undertaken should be 
carefully chosen. Since the project 
was a continuous one, the Commit- 
tee continued to function until the 
report was completed despite the 
loss of several members through 
graduation. 

We realized the importance of 
more widespread opinion. With 
this in mind, we frequently con- 
tacted students not on the com 
mittee; for instance, we sent let- 
ters to, and received carefully writ- 
ten replies from, students major- 
ing in every department in the col- 
lege to find out what they con- 
sidered the special contribution of 
their field, the major criticisms, 
and suggested improvements. Stu- 
dents were free at all times to at- 
tend our meetings; there was no 
closed meeting during the two 
years of the group's existence. 
Particularly last spring, when the 
report was being drawn up in its 
final form, interested students at- 
tended a number of our meetings. 
I regret that the two juniors were 
frustrated in their attempts to 
meet with us; I may say however, 
that numerous students did come 
to several sessions. It is un- 



fortunate that the two juniors 
allowed their "informal chance 
meeting" with one member of the 
group to influence unduly their 
attitude towards the entire com- 
mittee. I trust that their opinions 
may alter after they have attended 
at least one full meeting of the 
new committee. 

The group did not in any sense 
treat the educational problems of 
Wellesley as isolated gripes, nor 
did we proceed in the manner of 
a dormitory bull session. The in- 
troductory paragraphs of our re- 
port contain a clear statement of 
our underlying policy. Naturally 
we had to discuss the problems 
that faced Wellesley; we hardly 
consider ourselves experts on Vas- 
sar's educational difficulties. The 
very fact that such a group was 
formed at all bears witness to our 
awareness that liberal education 
in general was due for a thorough 
re-examination. 

The report itself was of course 
a compromise statement; nothing 
appeared in the report that was 
not thought out carefully and 
modified numerous times. We felt 
that our compromise suggestions 
might be practicable in the col- 
leges attempt to re-direct its edu- 
cational policy along the lines 
stated in our definition of a lib- 
erally educated person. I might 
add that we do not consider the 
liberally educated person one who 
has merely accumulated a specific 
amount of information, nor one 
equipped with technical unemploy- 
ment insurance. 

I hope that this will help to 
clear up the misunderstanding as 
to the composition and function 
of the committee. The new group, 
which has a different task ahead, 
will have different lines of de- 
velopment — it will profit by care- 
fully thought out, accurate sugges- 
tions from everyone interested.

Grad Student Describes 
Life in Wartime France 

Claude Veen Studies English Language, Literature 
Finds Academic Life at Wellesley Stimulating 

by Polly Piatt '48 

"The French speak English so 
differently irom the Americans!" 
reported dismayed Claude Veen, 
wno has just arrived Irom France 
to do post-graduate work on Eng- 
lish Literature and Language at 
Wellesley. She crossed tne Atlant- 
ic on a Liberty ship with twelve 
other passengers. 

Clauue comes from Talence, near 
Bordeaux, where she was born and 
educated. She compared the loca- 
tion ot Talence to that of Welles- 
ley, where the advantages of the 
country combine with the oppor- 
tunities offered by a nearby city. 
Forced to Leave 

In 1943, Claude and her family 
were ordered to leave their home 
within two days. The Germans 
had decided to requisition it. Dur- 
ing the intervening two years, her 
family were forced to live with 
friends in a house hardly large 
enough for one family. Returning 
after the Liberation, they found 
that their furniture was scattered 
around the town, that the floors 
and ceiling were ruined almost be- 
yond repair, that there were large 
holes in the walls. 

This willingness to share, Claude 
feels, is responsible for the sur- 
vival of many of the French. Food 
rations were so insufficient that 
without community sharing many 
more would have died from starva- 
tion. In this respect, the black 
market was and is a necessary 
evil. Bread and meat are rarely 
seen except on the black market.

Four Classic Clubbers 
Present Book Reports 
During First Session 

Classical Club held its first meet- 
ing of the year Wednesday eve- 
ning, October 24 in Shakespeare. 
Four members of the club present- 
ed book reviews. Janice Walker '47 
discussed Horace and Catullus, a 
biographical account and an appre- 
ciative study and analysis of their 
work by Tenney Frank. E. A. 
Davis' The Victor of Salamis, an 
historical novel with a Persian 
War as its setting was the selection 
of Ruth Kelley '47. Nancy Penson 
'46 discussed the philosophical 
thought of the early Roman Em- 
pire as shown in E. A. Rand's col- 
lected lectures, The Building of the 
Eternal Rome. Mary Jane Gabletsa 
'47 reviewed W. R. Agard's Wliat 
Democracy Meant to the Greeks, an 
estimate of Greek democracy and 
criticism of it by its own thinkers. 

The Greek and Latin Departments 
distributed a list of books from 
which these particular selections 
were made. The books on the list 
were those that might not be cover- 
ed in any one course in the depart- 
ments. 

A short business meeting preced- 
ed the book reviews. The Classical 
Club invited to the meeting faculty 
members who teach subjects related 
to Greek and Latin literature.

vail, it will dissolve. The Veens 
were more fortunate than most for 
they were allowed access to their 
garden without interference from 
the Germans. Here they were able 
to grow vegetables and to raise 
chickens, and rabbits. 

Describing France today, Claude 
confirmed other reports of condi- 
tions of starvation and death from 
cold. Because of the lack of heat, 
many, especially in Paris, are un- 
able to work and must stay in bed 
all day. Because railroads, bridges 
and vehicles of conveyance have 
been destroyed, transportation of 
food and other necessities from one 
area to another is impossible. Com- 
munication lines, demolished by al- 
lied bombardments, are still in the 
process of repair. 

Many Returning to France 

Many old and young Frenchmen 
are returning home after years of 
absence, Claude stated. Those who 
joined the Free French under Gen- 
eral DeGaulle in North Africa are 
being demobilized. Prisoners of

Prop Committee Seeks 
Ouija Board, Ashtrays 
For "Blithe Spirit" Set 

by Patti Wood '48 

Though your roommate may be 
muttering incoherently in her 
sleep these nights about crystal 
balls and ouija boards, please don't 
accuse her of harboring a Freudian 
complex — or a complex of any 
sort. She's probably a member of 
Barn's prop committee. And in 
that case you can expect almost 
anything between now and No- 
vember 2, when Blithe Spirit 
makes its debut on the Wellesley 
stage. She'll steal your ashtrays, 
borrow your lamp, and demand 
your favorite vase — all in the name 
of the "theatah." 

"Plays go rather to extremes," 
remarked Jane Forsythe '40, who is 
head of props this year. "One time 
you need a million vases, the next 
time it's ashtrays." Blithe Spirit 
is one of the "ashtray" plays, as 
one of the village houses will soon 
learn. It seems that Jane, without 
realizing it, made ashtrays the 
chief responsibility of one of the 
Freshmen who lives in a very small 
Vil house, and now she is positive 
that there won't be an ashtray left 
in the house by the time the 
Freshman has made her rounds. 

Props include everything from 
overstuffed chairs to wristwatches, 
Not only does the committee have 
to beg, borrow, or steal this odd as- 
sortment of articles, but it has to 
be sure that on the night of the 
performance the hero "has his 
watch in his left pocket and his 
handkerchief in his right," as Jane

C G. Forms New 
Publicity Group 

by Lyn Caplan, Head of Publicity 

A new and unprecedented Col- 
lege Government committee has 
just been born. Whether it be- 
comes a lusty infant, with a full 
life of imaginative activity ahead 
of it, or a wan little thing, whose 
first breathless squawks soon peter 
out into nothingness, IS ALL UP 
TO YOU. 

The Publicity Committee will 
have one basic function: to 
publicize the work being done in 
the various departments of College 
Government, s o that the students 
will get a clearer perspective of 
the system as a whole. 

It will provide opportunity for 
the assumption of much individual 
responsibility; each girl working 
with a particular committee and 
devising a technique for present- 
ing its objectives and problems to 
the student body, in order to ob- 
tain the most co-operation and 
understanding from them. Here 
is a chance for girls who are 
interested in advertising to take 
the bull by the horns and to learn 
to utilize the three different 
mediums at our service here on 
campus, News, Radio, and We. 

There has always been repeated 

clamor on the part of the student 

body, and regret on the part of 

active members of student govern-

Flexible Budget 

Gives Financial 
SuretyPromptly 

Family co-operation in a plan 
to take care of past, present and 
future needs is necessary to make 
a budget successful. If even one 
member of the family "cheats" 
on specified allowances the entire 
system is likely to fail. 

This proposition was the basis 
of a budgeting film shown by Miss 
Viola Wycoff of the Economics 
Department at the first in a series 
of marriage lectures held October 
17 in Pendleton Hall. Miss Wycoff 
supplemented the film, which gave 
directions for starting a budget, 
with information concerning the 
of living for girls starting 
out in careers and budgets for 
young married couples. 

Furniture looms high on the list 
of expenses for both groups. 
Among the other expenses, hous- 
ing, food and clothes come next. 
A -ingle girl will probably spend 
more on clothes than the young 
bride. ;is the bride should be well 
I ped at the time of her 
marriage. 

A definite savings plan should 
be worked out by both the single 
girl and the young married couples 
to give financial security when 
unexpected expenses appear. It 
also suggested that the budget 
be planned so that there would be 
a certain amount of money which 
would be unplanned and would 
serve the same purpose as slack in 
a rope. 

An important feature of a suc- 
cessful budget is its flexibility. It 
may take several plans before one 
is finally reached which will meet 
a particu^ir financial situation. 
The same budget never works for 
more than one family. 

A budget is an individual mat- 
ter, therefore, each budget should 
be adjusted to the particular needs 
that it must cover.

Miss Lindsay Reveals 

Taxi service between Boston and 
Wellesley on Saturday nights has 
been announced by Miss Ruth H. 
Lindsay, Dean of Residence. The 
taxi will leave the Pioneer Hotel 
promptly at 1:00 a.m., and stu- 
dents will sign in when they reach 
their dormitories. 

On nights of special dances in 
the Boston area, taxis will also 
in 1 1 from the Pi.oneer at 1:30, 
2:30, am] 3:30. The charge is 
$1.40, but it is expected that the 
fee will be reduced as more stu- 
dents make use of the taxi service. 

Arrangements may be made 
through Mrs. Stewart, Assistant 
in the Office of the Dean of Resi- 
dence, during her office hours on 
Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and 
Saturday mornings. Reservations 
should be made well in advance, 
and the procedure for making 
them is the same as for hotel 
reservations.

Sometimes, when the committee can

The Superior Court here at Wel- 
lesley deals with the most serious 
cases of infringements of social 
regulations. It meets rarely. Wo 
hope not oa all this year. How- 
ever, should occasion arise, we 
would like to have on file names 
of both students and faculty who 
would be interested and contribu- 
tive jury members. We are anx- 
ious to have suggestions from the 
college at large so that a widely 
representative file may be built up. 

First, a word about the make-up 
of the Court. The permanent 
members ("permanent" meaning 
one college year at least) are the 
president of the college, three 
faculty or administration repre- 
sentatives, five college govern- 
ment officers and the four elected 
class members of Court. The non- 
permanent representatives are the 
jury, a different one for each case. 
The names of four student mem- 
bers one from each class, and one 
faculty member are picked at ran- 
dom from the jury file. The duties 
of the jury during Court session are 
to ask questions, to discuss the 
situation fairly and objectively 
and to offer suggestions for pen- 
alties. After the Court meeting 
the jury members become emis- 
saries of the Court, explaining to 
their friends, without mentioning 
names, the case at hand and why 
the penalty was given. Then, too, 
the jury not only explains the 
Court to the college, but brings 
in from the student body con- 
structive suggestions concerning 
changes in policy and procedure. 
Fresh, practical ideas are extreme- 
ly valuable. 

We don't ask for perfection. All 
we want are people with interest, 
good sense, objectivity, and dis- 
cretion. Send any suggestions you 
may have to me at the College 
Government Office, 140 Green.

To Hang on Chandelier 

Judge Piatt Rules Rhinestone-Besprinkled Hat, Breach 
Of Chapel Decorum in Not Very Solemn Trial 

by B. J. Olson '45 



Jean Benneyaji's. {maroon hat 
will be hanged until dead from 
the chandelier in Great Hall of 
Tower Court at 5:00, Thursday, 
October 25". The decree was 
handed down by Judge Lee Piatt 
at I he trial of Good Taste vs. said 
maroon hat, Thursday, October 
18, in Shakespeare at 9:30. 

Pat Zipprodt, spokesman for 
the jury, recommended that the 
defendent be forced to wear the 
hat from sunrise Monday, October 
22. until Wednesday at sundown. 
The sentence was a compromise 
since the jury realized that some 
people liked the maroon hat on 
Miss Benneyan's head but Good 
Taste demanded it should be 
destroyed. 

The arrest was made following 
the appearance of the hat in Sun- 
day chapel on the grounds that it 
violated the rule of Good Taste. 

The hat is a felt of beret type 
wore over the left eye with a 
bright red and rhinestone bird of 
unknown species perched on the 
right front side. At the order of 
the court it was incarcerated on a 
bread and water diet in the bureau 
drawer of Mrs. William Napier 
for one week prior to the trial. 

Miss Marie Bransfield, Doctor of 
Love, ably defended the hat. She 
attempted to prove that the hat, 
although five years old, was still 
becoming and not out of style. 
The owner's sentimental attach- 
ment for the hat was stressed. 
Hats of the judge and the persecut- 



a big joke. Anyone who is 

interested in this committee is 
needed. 

If you want to become an active 
member of the committee drop me 
a note in resident mail without 
delay. The committee has to get 
to work within ten to twelve days, 
because various groups in C. G. are 
anxious to have help at once. We 
shall have a big meeting at the 
very first opportunity, to draw up 
a preliminary plan of action. 
Prom those who have suggestions 
to offer, yet not enough time to 
actively participate (This espe- 
cially applies to seniors who are 
already tied up in numerous other 
organizations), I would welcome a 
telephone call or a note to that 
effect. . 

I want to add that there is the 
prospect of some truly unique

ing attorney were presented as 
evidence that the maroon hat had 
more style than those worn by 
the representatives of Good Taste. 

Miss Ann Johnson, Doctor of 
Lawlessness, attacked the hat on 
the grounds that it did not be- 
long in an atomic age.' She 
pointed out that the only spiritual 
force connected to the hat was one 
of retrogression to high school 
days. Pictures of new hats were 
presented as testimony that the 
hat should be destroyed. 

The persecuting attorney sum- 
med up his case in an appeal to 
the jury to save Miss Benneyan 
from a lack of Good Taste all 
her life. "If you do not condemn 
the hat at this trial," she said, 
"the owner will never get a new 
hat. Would you buy this hat for 
yourself?" 

The defendent wore the maroon 
hat, a white sweatshirt, striped 
shorts, green beads, and black 
high heeled shoes with socks. The 
judge was garbed in a cap and 
gown with a wig of cut newspaper 
decorated with plaid bows. She 
summoned jury by a large silver 
horn. 

Both the defense and persecut- 
ing attorney wore academic robes. 
The former had rose buds and 
"Back Home for Keeps" pictures 
attractively attached to the robe. 
Miss Johnson wore her degrees of 
lawlessness in colored scarfs 
draped to the floor. 

Following the trial on the second 
floor of Shakespeare, cookies and 
coca cola were served in front 
of the fire on the first floor. 
Group singing was concluded with 
"Good Night Ladies."

Thanks for Textbooks 

Miss Mary Coolidge of the 
Philosophy Department, now on a 
year's leave and teaching in Ath-

appreciation for the English lit- 
erature and political science text- 
books which Wellesley students 
contributed last year. Miss Onder-

from Miss Coolidge, describing her 
work in Greece and commenting 
on how greatly these textbooks 
,are appreciated, since in many

Wellesley Art Museum Currently 
Exhibiting Work of Two Regions 

Forest Orr and Glenn MacNutt, In Watercolors 
Recreate Spirit and Color of New England 



The Wellesley College Art Mus- 
eum is currently showing: an exhi- 
bition of the watercolors of two 
local artists, Forest W. Orr and 
Glenn Mac Nutt. Both artists re- 
ceived much of their training in 
Boston arts schools and have been 
outstanding figures in New Eng- 
land art circles. Exhibitions of 
their works have appeared in pri- 
vate galleries and museums 
throughout the United States. 

Local scenes provide much of 
the subject matter for Forest Orr's 
paintings. The Fountain, Boston 
Common is a colorful and pleasant 



painted at an unusual and arrest- 
ing angle, and the typical hushed 
concentration has somehow been 
captured. The subject however, 
does not seem wholly suited for 
watercolor, because it hardly util- 
izes the possibilities of freedom in 
that technique. Undoubtedly the 
painting indicates the artist's ver- 
satility and mastery of detail and 
composition, but the somber colors 
and the fine feeling for textural 
gradations might have been more 
effectively displayed in a work of 
oils. Another painting with an in- 
teresting: angular focus is Morn- 




>: i:-M&*mJi£* 



painting capturing an atmosphere 
of bustling activity that one feels 
and senses around the fountain on 
a warm, clear day. A street scene 
in Boston during a heavy snowfall 
is represented in November Snow, 
Boylston Street. The buildings 
that can be seen in the distance 
through the falling snow are ex- 
tremely convincing and well-exe- 
cuted structures. The same feel- 
ing for architecture forms is ap- 
parent in Tapering Spire, Park 
Street Church, which is a lovely 
watercolor of the churchspire un- 
der a blanket of snow, with a 
heavy overcast sky suggesting the 
possibility of more snow. The ex- 
cellent gradation of washes for 
the sky is only one of the indica- 
tions of the artist's mastery of 
watercolor techniques. 

Glenn Mac Nutt has painted a 
wider range of subjects in the 



landscapes and streetscenes, there 
are a number of paintings of in- 
teriors. Boston Public Library was 
ing Shadows. The long shadows 
of the figures on a walk give unity 
to the composition. June Night 
is one of the many outdoor scenes 
that successfully capture the color 
and light of a particular time and 
place. 

Orr and Mac Nutt are represen- 
tative painters and are neither 
daring innovators nor experimen- 
talists. Both however, are mas- 
ters of their chosen watercolor 
medium, and both have succeeded 
in recreating a great deal of the 
spirit and color of the New Eng- 
land countryside.

Madrigal Plans 
Concert Series 
During Winter 

Campus concerts including 
broadcasts over WBS and the per- 
formance of Christmas carols dur- 
ing the holiday season are only 
part of the proposed activities for 
Wellesley's Madrigal Group this 
year. Newly organized under the 
direction of Miss Margaret M. 
Macdonald, Director of the Choir 
and Lecturer in Music, the Mad- 
rigal Group will include 16 mem- 
bers instead of 12. In addition 
to campus programs, off-campus 
concerts are scheduled which in- 
clude a performance in conjunc- 
tion with the Choir at the Haver- 
hill Wellesley Club. Miss Mac- 
donald stated that the Madrigal 
Group plans to branch out to 
greater variety in music this sea- 
son. 

Avery Leeming '46 is the new 
leader of the Madrigal Group. 
New members of the group are 
Jean Kix Miller '47 and Charlotte 
Stone '48, first sopranos; Peggy 
Hoover '47 and Kip Maurer '46, 
second sopranos; Bette Evans '47 
and Ruth Jacoby '47, first altos; 
Joyce McCoy *48 and Eunice Rich 
'46, second altos. Members of the 
Madrigal Group from last year 
are Mary B. Morrison '46 and Jean 
Turner '46, first sopranos; Bar- 
bara Gormley '47 and Judy Horna- 
<ly '48, second sopranos; Avery 
Leeming '46 and Peggy Wilson '47, 
first altos; Margot Coffin '46 and 
Peggy Sawyer *46, second altos. 



Were the girls on the fifth floor 
of Cazenove surprised when, on 
arriving in Boston Friday night to 
see "The Rugged Path" with 
Spencer Tracy, they discovered 
their tickets were for the following 
Saturday's matinee. Perry says 
they treated themselves to a soda 
before trudging the rugged path 
home. ., 



Robeson Sings 
In Opening of 
Concert Series 

Even the stage of Alumnae Hall 
was filled on October 17, when 
people gathered with high expecta- 
tions to hear the famous Negro 
basso, Paul Robeson. That he lived 
up to their hopes, both musically 
and personally was evident in 
their enthusiastic, prolonged ap- 
plause throughout the evening. 

His performance was not consis- 
tently excellent. The opening group 
of arranged folk songs and songs 
by Monteverde and Garat were def- 
initely lacking in assurance and 
richness of tone. His voice did not 
seem to carry to the back of the 
hall. 

By the time of the first encore, 
however, it was easy to see how he 
had captured the hearts of millions. 
The colorful ballad, Over the 
Mountains and Over the Waves, 
was sung with real zest and the 
words were clearly articulated. Mr. 
Robeson hit a stride here which he 
maintained, with a few exceptions, 
throughout the program. 

Mr. Robeson's greatest achieve- 
ment was in the Negro spirituals 
and secular songs chosen as en- 
cores. His version of the familiar 
No, John, No ballad was refresh- 
ingly animated with gesture and 
facial expression to fit the mood 
of the song. Equally delightful was 
Ezekiel saw de Wheel, in which the 
able accompanist, Lawrence 
Brown, joined in the singing. 
Listeners on the stage were given a 
chance to see him when he turned 
around to face them in Scandalize 
my name. 

The high point of the evening 
was reached when Mr. Robeson 
sang Deep River. The melancholic 
pathos of the singing was as deep 
as the extremely low notes which 
he reached with such ease. The 
communion of artist with audience 
was inescapable — the proverbial 
pin dropped would surely have been

Around the Vil 

Hi there! Just been down brows- 
ing: around the 'Vil and discovered 
that HILL AND DALE has the 
most wonderful collection of skirts 
that we've laid eyes on in ages. 
They have plaid taffeta skirts 
which are very gay and ruffly. 
Just right for Sunday tea dancing 
in town. Not to mention the all 
around navy, and brown 100 per 
cent wool numbers. And while 
you're in the shop don't overlook 
the perkv wool plaid skirts with 
red, green, or blue background. 

Any wise girl knows that she 
doesn't have to pass up that 
luncheon date in town just because 
*he has an 11 :40 class on Saturday. 
LE BLANC TAXI will meet you 
right after class and whisk you off 
to the 12:41 with at least five min- 
utes to spare. Just call Wellesley 
1600. 

Having fur coat troubles? Don t 
give up in despair. B. L-. lUVKii 
will fix up your coat so it looks 
better than new. His work is out 
of this world and all you have to 
do is drop in and see him at Welles- 
ley Square next to Liggett 's or call 
Wellesley 0217-M. 

Sad is the lass whose date sends 
her a red corsage to wear with her 
brand new orange formal. If she's 
smart she'll tell the one and only 
that things like this never happen 
when the corsage is from 
FRASER'S in Wellesley Hills. 
Their corsages of gardenias or fall 
flowers are simply scrumptious 
and sure to match your dress. 

P.S. They telegraph flowers any- 
where anytime. 

It's HUNTER'S for stationery 
of all varieties. Better trot down to 
the 'Vil and look over their wonder- 
ful collection. They have every- 
thing from very fancy notes to 
strictly tailored letter paper. Our 
favorite is their white stationery 
with the Wellesley seal. 

CANDLEWICK CABIN. Welles- 
ley's community furniture and 
clothing exchange, which is located 
at 473 Washington street near the 
Ford Motor Company, will pay you 
top prices for those odds and ends 
of clothing. Here's your chance to 
make a very neat sum on that skirt 
or suit you never did like. 

No more banged up fingers and 
short tempers which result from a 
verv futile attempt to send your 
extra room furnishings home. Just 
trot your things down to COL- 
LEGE TAXI and they will do a 
perfect job of packing or crating 
them for a very nominal fee. 



U. S. Forestry Expert's 
Topic is Conservation 

Mr. W. Ridgely Chapline, Chief 
of the Division of Range Research 
of the U. S. Forest Service, will 
speak here in a lecture on "Forest 
Conservation," sponsored by the 
Botany Department Friday, Octo- 
ber 26 at 2:40 p. m. in Sage Hall. 
A colored sound motion picture 
will accompany his talk. 

Mr. Chapline. the father of 
Barbara Chapline '46, is a gradu- 
ate of the University of Nebraska. 
Associated with the Forest Service 
since 1910, he has traveled widely 
and lectured at many colleges. 



Robeson Critic - 

(Continued from Page 5) 
heard. Almost as moving as this 
was the Kern favorite, OV Man 
River, in which Mr. Robeson com- 
municated the intensity of "sweat 
and strain" as effectively as the 
eternal, imperturbable spirit of the 
river. 

The basso's ability was not limit- 
ed to Negro and folk tunes, how- 
ever. Simplicity and sincerity 
underlay his rendition of the Boris 
Goudonoff excerpts, by Moussourg- 
sky, leading a refinement which 
kept the piercing woe of the music 
from being "overdone." The 
Shakespeare song, It was a Lover 
and his Lass, with music by Roger 
Quilter, was extremelv lively. 

Mr. Robeson was as friendly and 
generous as he is versatile. After 
doing more than his share with en- 
cores (so that the total number of 
songs was about twice as long as 
the program listed!), he consented 
to a request to act out the last 
speech of Othello. This superb per- 
formance was a fitting conclusion 
to the concert. 

Mr. William Schatzkamer, pianist, 
who alternated with Mr. Robeson 
on the program, gave rather stuffy 
academic interpretations to works 
which called for much more vigor 
and excitement than he was able to 
produce. His best piece was the 
Debussy Reflets dans I'Eau, but 
even this was somewhat weak and 
uninteresting. The young artist is 
quite accurate at the keyboard, but 
he seems to be afraid of his own 
strength. The result is that his 
playing is too restrained. 

Mr. Robeson, in closing the con- 
cert, said he had enjoyed being at 
Wellesley. Vice versa would be a 
gross understatement of the pleas- 
ure Wellesley derived from Mr. 
Robeson.

The second is that, according to 
Juniors, it is the best Junior Snow 
ever to be produced. The reason 
advanced for its greatness is that. 
it is a "well-integrated play." 
One Junior was heard to remark 
enthusiastically, "it has a plot, 
and everything!" 

Not only does Junior Show have 
11 songs and a plot. All the 
songs will have something to do 
with the action, according to its 
writers and musicians. As a 
matter of fact, "the songs are 
necessary, not just inserted for the 
sake of musical sequence."

Dr. Haring - 



(Continued from Page 1) 

ers who often purposely made poor 
matches so that they would have 
more business. Since the 1920's, 
however, the state has set up gov- 
ernment matrimorial bureaus. 

In his seven years of teaching in 
various Japanese schools, Dr. 
Haring found university life in 
Japan quite different from that in 
our country. If a student is absent 
from classes for three days with- 
out reason, or is sick xor more than 
a week, he is expelled and must 
take another entrance examination 
in order to be reinstated. The 
Confucian tradition of respect for 
the teacher has a profound in- 
fluence on the students, Dr. Haring 
believes. It is considered an honor 
for the student if his teacher will 
live in his house. The relation be- 
tween student and professor is 
much like that between a patient 
and his family doctor; the teacher 
often plays the part of father con- 
fessor. Dr. Haring, before the war, 
still corresponded with many of his 
former students. 

The language problem in dealing 
with the Japanese is one of the 
chief obstacles we must surmount. 
The slightest difference in vowel 
sounds may make all the difference 
in the world, Dr. Haring pointed 
out. "In fact, I once lost a house- 
maid that way," he grinned. "Who 
can blame her for leaving," 'Jochu,' 
means housemaid, but if the "u" is 
made a long vowel the meaning 
changes to 'intestinal parasite."
